Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
Set in 2031, the entire world is frozen except for those aboard the Snowpiercer. For 17 years, the world's survivors are on a train hurtling around the globe creating their own economy and class system. Led by Curtis, a group of lower-class citizens living in squalor at the back of the train are determined to get to the front of the train and spread the wealth around. Each section of the train holds new surprises for the group who have to battle their way through. A revolution is underway.Written by
At the end of the film, Curtis reveals that he killed Edgar's mother when he was still a baby. Presumably Edgar was raised by Curtis, Gilliam and the others in the back of the train. Edgar has a strong Irish accent even though there don't appear to be any other Irish people. If he was raised on the train since infancy, his accent should reflect those around him, the majority of whom are American or English. See more »

This movie demonstrated that Hollywood can learn a lot from the modern South Korean cinema. Everything Hollywood does, Asians seem to do better. This allegorical movie about the social order is perhaps a bit short on its main premise, but it really does not matter that much. Infinitely more intelligent than its Hollywood counterparts, it is one smart action movie that sets the standard for Hollywood to follow.
